New Bank in South Whitley (1894)

Columbia City Post, Whitley County, Indiana ~ Wednesday, December 12, 1894

Arrangements have been completed for a new bank in South Whitley, Indiana, to be known as the Whitley County Bank, under the firm name of Foust, Remington & Co.

The firm consists of F. H. Foust of this city. Mr. Foust, the senior member of the new firm is too well known to need any introduction to the people of this community, having been in business here since 1849, and in the banking business continuously for over 27 years.

Mr. F. S. Remington is one of the oldest and best known business men in the county, having been engaged in active business in South Whitley for the past 23 years, thus giving him the benefit of a wide acquaintance and especially fitting him for the position he is to occupy in the new bank.

Mr. I. B. Rush is one of our best known citizens, having been associated with the Columbia City Bank for over 25 years. He has a banking experience which will be a valuable aid to the new firm.

These gentlemen are all solid, substantial business men which is a guarantee of their responsibility as bankers. The Whitley County Bank will occupy the rooms formerly occupied by the South Whitley Bank, and will be ready for business on or about December 1st, 1894.
